Book Club Meets Once per Season

August 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

We’re reading “Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole” by Susan Cain.
From the Amazon blurb:

If you’ve ever wondered why you like sad music . . .
If you find comfort or inspiration in a rainy day . . .
If you react intensely to music, art, nature, and beauty . . .

Then you probably identify with the bitter­sweet state of mind. Bittersweetness is a tendency to states of long­ing, poignancy, and sorrow; an acute aware­ness of passing time; and a curiously piercing joy at the beauty of the world. It recognizes that light and dark, birth and death—bitter and sweet—are forever paired.

Discussion will be led by Eric Shyman, Ed. D., B.C.S.E.  Please RSVP with Dr. Blyskal if you’d like to attend.
